Final Score – Harmony Grove 40, Drew Central 14

Friday, November 7th, 2014

Thursday night, the Drew Central Pirates lost at home to the Harmony Grove Hornets, 14-40. It was the Pirates’ last game this season, and they played hard to end it on a good note.

The Hornets were successful in the first half, with the score being 0-34 at halftime, but in what seems to be turning into a trend, the Pirates rallied in the second half. The Pirates held the Hornets to a touchdown, and blocked their extra point attempt, while scoring 2 touchdowns and a 2 point conversion of their own. The Pirates also forced a fumble on a Hornet kickoff return, and recovered the ball on the Hornet 20 yard line, but ran out of time before they scored again.
